Autumn Macros - Page 3

Most everything around my yard is dried up and dead.  Not that that doesn't make for some good outdoor macro pictures.  But recently I drove to Tower Hill Botanic Gardens to see if I could get some flowering plants.  There will soon be some beautiful flowering plants inside, but I wanted to see what I could find in the outdoor gardens.

I did find some flowering plants, but also plenty of dead stuff.  The images below are a mix.

Taken with iPhone 5S.
500D closeup lens by Canon attached to
Panasonic 35-100 (70-100 equiv) mm zoom.

I used my recently acquired Panasonic 70-200mm-equivalent F2.8 zoom (due to the Olympus/Panasonic 2x crop factor it is actually a 35-100 zoom) and added the Canon 500D closeup lens.  With this add-on, all the focusing is done at about 20" from the subject and the zoom is used to compose. All are at F2.8.

I like the colors and composition.
Unfortunately only 3 pedals are in focus, at best.
